Product Description

Specially designed for makeup touch-ups and cleaning tight spaces, Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs are a must have at home! Made with pointed tips at both ends, Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs are ideal for touching up eye liner, precisely applying concealer and perfecting manicures like a pro. 100 percent pure cotton. Sleeve & Tray packaging keeps cotton swabs protected from the environment and gives you a clean swab every time. Q-tips® cotton swabs are biodegradable when composted and packaging is recyclable. Tips Using Q-tips® Precision Tips™: The Ultimate Smokey Eye Look. To achieve a quick smokey eye, draw a thick line close to your lash line using your eyeliner and smudge upwards with a Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swab to create a “smokey” effect. Dab Three Dots to Hide Under Eye Circles. Hide under eye circles by using a Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swab to dab on three dots of concealer. Use the other end to blend for a seamless finish. Apply Fake Lashes. Use Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs to help apply fake lashes! Start by applying a dab of lash adhesive to the tip. Keep the tip close to the lash line and use it to guide the application of the faux lash strip. Mask a Blemish. To quickly hide a blemish, simply moisten one end of your Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swab with an astringent that contains salicylic acid and lightly dab onto the blemish.  Use the other end as a makeup applicator to apply an oil-free concealer to mask the blemish. Remove Puffiness and Soothe Skin. Help remove puffiness under the eyes with Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs. Place a small bag of Q-tips ® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs in the freezer that have been dampened with water.  Once chilled, roll under the eyes to alleviate any puffiness and soothe swollen skin. Precision Powdering. Rather than applying powder on the entire face, use your Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs to dab loose powder only where you need it – for example, the center of the forehead, the sides of the nose and the chin. Keep Your Perfect Pout in Place. Keep lip color from bleeding by using Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs to apply loose translucent powder along the outer edge of the lips. The At-Home Manicure. Give yourself an at-home manicure and pedicure with Q-tips® cotton swabs or Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs by lightly moistening the end with nail polish remover to instantly erase nail polish from your cuticles. see more...

These work great for personal hygiene, on children, or make up! I use them on my daughter for things like her belly button or face. I will use these for make up since they are more precise to use on things like eyeliner.

These are so awesome for makeup and also for gun cleaning 😂. I bought a box and my husband completely took them over to clean his guns. But as far as beauty goes, they're nice for cleaning up eyeliner messes or mistakes and also for cleaning up my cuticles when I do my nails at home.

These precision tipped Q-tips are really great. They work/help very well with makeup. The precision tip helps very well with cleaning up messy winged eyeliner with makeup remover or coving up a little excuses liner with concealer. Overall these Q-tips are a must needed for just about everything

These are great for fixing any screw ups! It fits perfectly under my lower lashes. Awesome for when you slip and get mascara on the bridge of you nose and don't want it to smudge. They also super affordable!

These are an absolute must for me when applying a cat eye eyeliner look. I make a lot of mistakes and these do a great job of fixing them after dipped in a tiny bit of makeup remover.

The best thing ever made for correcting makeup mistakes. Never have my wings looked so absolutely perfect. The edge is the perfect thickness to really be precise when you are cleaning up makeup such as eyeliner or eyeshadow.

These are the best! I use them daily and they are super affordable. I purchase them at drug stores. They are easy to use. They went over my expectations. I recommend them to everyone who needs a little clean up.

I could go on forever about the potential uses of this product as here are some...
1. Apply touch-up paint to cabinets or walls and putting wood stain on scratches in furniture or floors.
-Lighting hard-to-reach candle wicks
-Fading tea stains on cloth - Dilute lemon juice with an equal amount of water. Use an eyedropper or a Q-tip to make sure the juice targets the stain. Thoroughly flush with cool water.
-Riddust from picture frames
-clean electronic devices such as CD players, DVD/VCR players, cameras, radios and computers
-jewelry cleaner
-Dip the ends of Q-Tips in olive oil and then run them along sticky zippers. The oil is an excellent lubricant that will make the closures open and close easier
-Remove excess nail polish off the sides of your nails
-Clean up hair dye drips from your forehead while coloring your hair at home
-Use Q-tips as an emergency supply of perfume. The scent of perfume eventually fades after a few hours. Spray perfume on the tips of a few cotton swabs and seal them in a plastic bag. The scent stored by the swabs lasts for several hours. Just apply the swabs on your pressure points

The possibilities are endless
